2005 x3 Alarm system....

Does the 2005 come with an alarm system?? Does it have a lights and beep system when you lock/unlock the car or is that a feature that needs to be added?? Thanks.

Prewired is standard, but the doors lock and visible loghts flash when you lock the car by remote. When you finalize your papers at the dealer they will try to pull a $600.00 charge for what they call an alarm. Basically, it includes an siren, motion sensor in the cabin.

The car already comes with an excrypted key system, so only your key will start the car, you just don't have the bells and wistles (literally) of a regular alarm.

I can really see my self paying $600 bucks for that.

Check the other post, I saw the alarm kit from BMW on e-bay for $160. But it's a self install.

Car alarm is more of an annoyance now a days. If people really want your car, nothing can stop them. They cam always pull a 007 to by pass the encrypted key. I've personally never seen it. :confused:
